Endears the reader to the animals by the way he trains and relates to them.
Fascinating to learn how he figured out to train the animals and get them to do amazing things.
Also, rescued animals and found great homes for them after they finished their roles.
This is an enjoyable tale of a man and the love for his animals, and the mark that he left on rescue organizations (the dogs and cats he trained were chiefly rescue animals, and showed that even a "mutt from the pound" could succeed in show business).
The only thing that bothered me about this book was a two-paragraph story about how Benji and his (actually her, because the second Benji was female) trainer Frank Inn visited the set of ANNIE. Berloni comments that the dog seemed robotic and only alive when she was doing routines. I thought that was kind of odd because Frank Inn had a great reputation in Hollywood and he was known to favor the dogs who played Benji (the original "Higgins" and then his daughter). Maybe Benji just adored her trainer and kept her eyes on him at all times. Some dogs are like that.
